450 Years of the Spanish Riding School
450 Years of the Spanish Riding School
by Elisabeth Gürtler
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £55.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 28 Dec. 2015
I was looking forward to this book - being a fan of the Lipizzaner horse. What a disappointment! This very heavy book consists mainly of photographs - very pretty photographs to be sure, but where is the history? There are less than 20 pages covering the history of the Spanish Riding School, and over half of these are in German. The rest are an English translation which I found patronising and irritating in tone. I also hoped for some historical pictures, but apart from the outer cover and a double plate end plate there were none.
Yes, the text does cover the 450 years of its history, but only very superficially, in my opinion.
I would describe this as a glossy coffee table book, for those who work out regularly (It is very heavy). For those who like academic vigour, I would suggest they look elsewhere.


Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 (PC/Mac)
Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 (PC/Mac)

2.0 out of 5 stars Great at first, but now has stopped working; very poor support from Adobe, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This program has stopped working completely now. Have re-booted, re-installed etc. All to no avail. Help and support on Adobe website is unhelpful in the extreme. When it was working, this was an excellent program, but what the point of spending money if four months down the line it stops working and you can't get any help.

4.0 out of 5 stars (very useful for American gardeners), 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clear information from an undoubted expert. It covers the major Species amd Cultivars, giving detailed information on garden suitability, growing zones, (very useful for American gardeners), and most importantly, pruning instructions. Whilst it is not exhaustive. it should cover the needs of 99% of gardeners.
Using this book, in association with the plethora pof information available available on the web, most gardeners should feel fully confident in selecting, planting and growing almost any clematis species or cultivar.
Why not 5 stars? Well, more pictures and more Cultivar information wouldn't have upset me!

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Predictable end, unrealistic plot and irritating tone. The story is of a cop turned journalist, who stumbles his way around, discovering what is happening at a Genetics company. A supposed goodie, he seems to be quite happy to put everyone's life at risk in his quest for justice, but never reports back to his boss anything he learns. Despite seeing innocent people die, including some of his friends, he blithely witnesses for the murder of the head baddie (by the President, no less) and settles for a dose of the miracle treatment as the price of his silence. The plot leaves you unconvinced and with little sympathy for the protagonist..
Added to the fact that the book is split into two halves, the first half free, the second paid for - this smacks of slightly dubious practice.
I won't be purchasing any more of Mr Irvine's books. Don't get sucked in.

The Sword of Honour Trilogy: Men at Arms, Officers and
by Evelyn Waugh
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Evelyn Waugh does not disappoint. War, 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Evelyn Waugh does not disappoint. War, catholicism, the oddness of people, fate and army life all explored with lightness of touch and humour that only witers of Waugh's ilk can achieve.
Good writing.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great big storage boxes suitable for packing lighter items, such as duvets etc. Bought for packing books, but not really for this as gets to heavy to lift by ordinary mortals! Well made.
